  1. Hello everyone. I am an international student from Korea. I majored in econ and math as undergrad and I am doing masters in econ in Korea and I am going to apply next year. I've already taken several math graduate courses( eg) Graduate real analysis, algebraic topology, financial mathematics, etc) and got good enough gpa in math( 4.32/4.5 and 4.0/4.0 in 4.0 scale). Is taking more math just for fun a waste of time? I want to take functional analysis 1,2, convex optimization, harmonic analysis and some probability theory courses. I have my GRE, Toefl scores ready and and I am also doing my research. What are your thoughts?
  2. Hi, I'm taking a bunch of math courses and a few econ courses before applying in fall '22 cycle. Some schools have deadlines in early December. In these instances, will they look at the courses that I take in fall semester 2022? I'm planning on taking Analysis during that semester, and want the course grade to have posted by the time they consider my application. Are those fall courses generally taken in to account by adcoms?
  3. Can anyone tell me how competitive this profile would be for UC Irvine to apply this fall and start next fall? School: large research state school/university with not much of a ranking for economics UG GPA: 3.35ish Grad GPA thus far: 3.8 without 2014 metrics class (somehow tacked onto my grad GPA) or 3.55ish with 2014 metrics class (which I'm currently retaking and doing above average so far) Math courses after UG in 2014 (all UG level): Linear Algebra (A-), Intro to Advanced Math (A-), Calculus IV (A-), Elementary Prob & Stats (A), Introduction to Real Analysis (currently taking), Introduction to Differential Equations (will take this fall) Economics courses after UG in 2014 (all grad level): Mathematics for Economics (A), Microeconomics I (A-), Metrics I (currently taking), Microeconomics II (currently taking), Experimental Economics (currently taking), Macroeconomics I (will take this fall), Metrics II (will take this fall), Macroeconomics II (will take next spring), Research Capstone (will take next spring) Teaching experience: currently a TA for Principles of Microeconomics (spring 2021) Research experience: currently working on my research capstone project (on experimental economics pertaining to antitrust and industrial organization) as well as a project with a more senior student (very avid researcher) who is about to graduate with a phd at my institution (on some inequalities in sports pertaining to soccer clubs), and I should have some kind of writing sample from both in time for the December 1 deadline to apply Computer skills: LaTeX, some RStudio, some Python, some Stata GRE scores: expecting 169+ for Q, 162+ for V, and 5.0+ for writing It would be neat to hear your opinions on how this might fare for UC Irvine...
  4. Please, any taking the NAPLEX soon or have taken the naplex already? How was it and how do you study for it? :)
  5. Hello, everyone! Just recently, I was finally able to take the GRE, and after having taken it, I want to warn you all of one thing: do not let the GRE trick you into thinking that you're doing worse than you really are! There were various points in time while I was taking the test in which I was highly convinced that I was doing absolutely horrendously, and I thought that I would have to retake the test. Well, I just got back my results last night, and... well, as you can see from the title of this post, I had absolutely nothing to worry about! Here's the thing: because the GRE is so complex, it was designed—and I am convinced intentionally—to make test-takers feel as if they're understanding less than they actually need to. My best guess as to why this is so is so that test-takers are less likely to rely on prior knowledge that they had before taking the test and rather to apply more of an a priori logical approach to solving the problems which the test presents to you.* Therefore, many of you will feel like you are doing worse on the test while taking it than you really are, and I want to ensure you all that there is still a chance that you may be doing well. Now, my advice can certainly be taken a bit too far—if you feel as if you are struggling with the contents of the test, you may very well be struggling to get your desired score. An overconfident view of your capacities to score well on the exam won't do you any more good than a total lack of confidence in yourself. So, if you find yourself in a similar situation to the one I was in while taking the exam, I would not advise deciding to ignore that feeling that you might be struggling entirely. However, I would most certainly advise you to remind yourself that it hasn't yet been ascertained that you have scored poorly, and there is still a chance that you may be doing better than you think. In doing so, you will neither be compelled to throw your hands in the air while in the middle of taking the test, nor will you be setting yourself up to see the test as easier than it really is and thus remove the necessary amount of pressure you need to take the test seriously and consider each question carefully. I hope that this account of my experiences while taking the test has proven useful to some of you, and I hope that it removes some of the anxiety that some of you may have while taking or preparing for the exam. I wish you all the best of luck in your studies for the test and in your performance on test day! Kind regards to all, —Topher *If anyone is not entirely sure what "a priori​" means, I will be happy to define it for you!
  6. I am a current undergrad at a top 5 (think HYPMS) university. I did not do so well in multivariate calculus and linear algebra (think B/B+), so I am thinking of taking a course at a UC this summer for remediation. Unfortunately, due to COVID, it seems everyone got the same idea, leaving it impossible to register for a course at UCLA/UCB. This leaves me with options at these schools: UCSC: Linear Algebra UCI: Multivariable UCR: Multivariable Linear Algebra I Was wondering if taking any of these courses would help remediate my ****** grade and at least show I am competent in these subjects. I do plan on taking harder courses next year at my school, and hopefully I'll do well. However, I was wondering if the quality of these schools should impact my decision in which school(s) I choose (I can choose multiple thanks to remote instruction), and which school I should choose.
  7. Hi, I'm an Asian (non-Chinese) looking forward to applying for Finance PhD in around 2022. I have concerns regarding taking grad math courses. Would taking grad Probability (measure-based prob) and grad Real Analysis (Hilbert Space) be of any help in the application process? The concern is due to my sub-optimal grades. Please see my profile below for your reference. I'm also open to Econ PhDs. Test Scores: (GRE) 170/163/5.0 (Q/V/W) Undegrad GPA: CGPA: 4.0/4.5 (3.7/4.0 if A+,A=4.0, B+,B=3.0, etc.) from a regionally well-known Asian university, Econ major. Econ Classes (advanced): Econometrics II (time series), Empirical Analysis of Policies (DiD, Matching, etc.), Game Theory, Intermediate Metrics (IV, Probit, etc.) Math&Stats Classes: Calc I,II (II being multivariate), Lin Alg I,II, Analysis I,II, ODE, Probability, Mathematical Statistics, Stochastic Processes, Numerical Analysis; the following are being taken this semester: Topology I, Real Analysis (measure), Applied Math (deep learning). Mostly A+ or As, except for the following: Game Theory (B+), Industrial Org (B), ODE (B+), Numerical Analysis (B+) Research Experience: A few undergrad-level papers, but none significant. Work Experience: 6m intern at an Asian global IB (Research) 3m intern at a major global IB (Risk) Others: I will be enrolled in MA Econ from the same University starting next semester. I have a high chance of getting TA-ships and RA-ships, which could hopefully boost my chances. Concerns: Gauging from the above profile, would taking grad math courses help my application? (I am pretty confident I can get A's) Also, what else could I do besides writing good papers in my Masters? What would be the most probable target schools that I can aim for? Thank you in advance.
  8. Can you pause a recording while taking notes? Can you listen the same recording twice? Thanks in advance.
  9. The following are topics included in the course that I'm considering taking: "Metric spaces, differentiation of functions of several real variables, the implicit and inverse function theorems, Riemann integral on Rn, Lebesgue measure on Rn, and the Lebesgue integral." Is it worth taking? I already took Honors Analysis 1 and received a good grade. The course topics included are: "Properties of the real number system, sequences, continuous functions, topology of the real line, compactness, derivatives, the Riemann integral, sequences of functions, uniform convergence, infinite series and Fourier series." Thanks.
  10. I've joined this forum just now and look forward to so much. I hope it helps in my licensure exams which I'll be taking 3 years from now. Maybe it's too soon and I'm glad to be here. My sincere greetings to everyone reading this.:)
  11. Does taking three courses the semester before applying to grad school seriously hurt your chances? I've heard for other programs that if you aren't taking at least four courses you can't even apply. Is this ever true for econ programs?
  12. I'm considering taking a few extra courses in order to gain a math major. Specifically I would take complex analysis and two semesters of algebra (every other math course required is one I'm taking anyway). Is this worth it, given that those classes are largely not relevant to econ as far as I know? Is there some signalling value to a math major or to these unrelated math courses that makes it worthwhile to take them?
  13. Did anybody get an email from Harvard Business School after taking the GRE?
  14. Hi, I'm currently studying in top 3 mater's program in my country.(QS ranking 51-100) Math and econ courses I took until now are as follows: Business Statistics(B+), Calculus I, II(B+, A+), Linear Algebra I, II(A, A), Analysis I, II(Rudin's PMA)(A, A+), Ordinary Differential Equations(A+), Intro to probability(A+), Mathematical Statistics(A), Graduate Probability from stat department(measure theory-based)(A+) Intermediate micro/macro(B+, A+), Econometrics I, II(A+, A), Grad micro(Mas-Collel)(A), Grad macro(A+), Grad econometrics(A) I'm interested in development, economic history, labor, and political economy and have about ten months left until I apply for PhD programs. For next semester, I was thinking of taking measure theory or undergrad topology from math department. However, every professor in my department I talked to discouraged me to take more maths and recommended me to start to make a good writing sample that is publishable in academic journals, if possible. My concern is that not taking measure theory might have any negative influence on my profile. I also think that my strength does not lie in performance coursework, but in research ideas. Some professors with whom I discussed my term papers spoke highly of my potentials. But the problem is that they do not seem to be not well known in their fields or have strong connections to US economists. To be clear, they received PhD degrees from top 10-20 schools in the US and published some articles in top field journals. Furthermore, I doubt if I would be able to write a good paper within few months although I have a vague research agenda and plan to construct a novel dataset from archives(I am not sure if I could find any statistical significance!*** or how much time will it take to digitize them in my spreadsheet). I also wonder how much importance does adcom place on taking measure theory? So given the time constraint, which option will be better for me in terms of increasing the marginal probability of getting admission or becoming an independent researcher? A: Take measure theory or topology, minimize the amount of time invested in studying maths and try to make a good writing sample at the same time. B: Stop taking more maths, and just try to advance your research agenda. Thanks.
